Traditional Water Heater

Traditional Tank Water Heaters

Most water heaters are tank water heaters which keep a cylindrical tank full of hot water in your home at all times.  The typical Sizes available for household water heaters that utilize a tank are between 20 and 100 gallons.  When hot water is required, the water is circulated to the open faucet.  Conventional tanks utilize electric, natural gas, propane, oil, solar or geothermal power as an energy source to heat the water.

Electric Water Heaters

The typical electric water heater is wired to a 220 volt circuit.  To heat the water, the current passes through electrical resistance heating elements, usually two, one at the middle of the tank and one at the bottom.  Power is delivered to each element through a thermostat, a switch that senses the water temperature.  When the temperature drops, the switch closes to allow current flow, and it opens when the temperature reaches its preset limit.  Thermostats have a dial for setting the maximum water temperature, generally between 130 degrees and 140 degrees F, or as low as about 120 degrees F for increased energy savings and scald protection.  When a hot water tap is opened, cold water enters the tank through the dip tube and the drop in temperature triggers the thermostat and element at the bottom.  As the water a the top of the tank is replaced by cool water, the temperature at the top thermostat drops, and its element kicks in.  When the tap is turned off, the heating elements continue to carry current until the thermostats are satisfied.
